DETROIT (CBS DETROIT/AP) — Police say a Detroit gas station clerk who was apparently trying to shoot a potato chip thief ended up wounding a bystander instead.

Police say a young man was at the gas station Tuesday night on the city’s west side when he was shot in the chest. At the same time, a different person was trying to leave without paying for several bags of potato chips. Police say the clerk had fired through the gas station’s glass door at the alleged thief.
